House Wednesday night during the

Cupid naa lost hla antl tipping
fight Judi Campbell went to Port
land Friday and gave little Dan a
solar plexus blow. However, the lit
tie fellow Is not dismayed, and It Is
dollars to doughnuts that he'll keep
cn working. Justices Bell and Olson,
of Multnomah county, brought aults
which Involved their claims for the
payment of salaries and the offsets
alleged by Multnomah county for
marriage fees, which the county coo
tended should have been tnrned Into
the county treasury. Attorneys for
the Justlcea of the peace objected to
Portland Judccs trying the cases and
Judge Campbell was asked to bear
them. He held that persona who en

not litigants, and' therefore It waa
Just for the Justices who performed

HAYES IS URGED
POPULAR LAWYER 8AY8 HE It
NOT READY TO MAKE DEFI
ALL CLASSES FAVORABLE TO
Service In 8tat Senate And aa Coun
ty Judge Won Him Many
Friends Declaion To
Bo Made Soon.
' Since the announcement several
days ago by Mayor Brownell that bo
would not be a candidate for re
election, scores of business, profos
slonal and laboring men have urged
Gordon E Hayes to become a candi
date for tho office. Judge Hayes ap
preciates the compliment paid him
by bis friends, and will, in a short
time make a definite announcement
of bis Intentions. He aays bo roav
llzea the office Is an Important one,
and no man should become a candi
date for it without careful considera
tion, i y '
There Is much regret that Mayor
Brownell -haa declined to be a esav '
dldate for re-election, bat tho wr
lar mayor declares that hla declalon
la Irrevocable, and, as a result, tbo
public-spirited citizens have been
looking about for a man to soccaaa
him. Many of theae have aaked
er prominent men also have been
urged to become candldatea, but SIC
are holding the matter In abeyance.
The mayor of Oregon City receives
no salary. The dutiea of the office
are arduous and trying. No natter
now capaDie me ornciai ana bow ,
efficient hla administration there are
alwaya persons to criticise) his ao
tlona. For these reasons the moat
tbe office. Judge Hayea. however.
realises the honor is a high one, and.
If after mature deliberation, he cotv-
cludea that he can servo tho people)
of tho city to advantage ho will an
nounce bla candidacy.
Judge Hayea admitted when seen
by a reporter for the Morning Enter- -prae
that friends bad asked blm to
become a candidate, but, aalde from
saying that he had made no declalon.
he declined to be interviewed.
There is no better lawyer In Ore
gon than' Judge Hayea, and ho la one
of the best speakers In tbe North1- .
west He haa on several occasions
accompanied United statea senators
and others on speaking trlpa during
presidential campaigns, and waa al
waya enthusiastically received by tbe
audiences. He bas lived ln Oregon
City all of bia life, and no man here
has a larger host of devoted friends.
He served two terms ln the state) .
senate, waa county Judge four yeara
and was local attorney of tho State
Land Board for twenty-five years.
If Judge Hayea becomes a candi
date be will do so with a determine
tlon to win. and his friends declare
he will poll an unusually largo rote.
